Our Mission

IDLogiq provides Global 5000 companies with highly secure, FIPS-compliant, state of the art cryptographic products and services to combat counterfeiting. In addition to anti-counterfeiting, we also provide a powerful yet easy to use communication and engagement platform to empower the supply chain to connect with consumers.  This platform enables extra services such as product recalls and customer feedback.

IDLogiq also provides Healthcare Providers (HCP) with services and technology to monitor disease and symptom progression remotely and then engage with acute and chronically ill patients virtually to modify care plans and to provide education on self-care, based on changes in the patient’s condition. In addition, we provide patients with medication management and education so that they can adhere to care plans prescribed by Health Providers to achieve a holistic health management.

Our Team

Our leadership consists of entrepreneurs with proven track records of successful exits in high-tech, pharmaceutical, and medical industry.

IDLogiq team consists of healthcare and technology professionals who envision the integration of mobile, cloud service, and IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) technology is the key to the future of healthcare ecosystem. We believe that health and wellness is a continuous engagement among all members of the health ecosystem, which includes patients, healthcare providers, payers, with the patient being the center of care. There are certain services that will continue to require patient to be inside the clinical environment; however, with advances in IoMT we envision that patients can be continuously cared for, from anywhere, all the time, for a better quality of life, without being confined to clinical environment.

We envision a healthy world free of counterfeit drugs, electronics, clothing, and much more with a global environment working together to optimize business efficiency and safety, while also providing valuable insight, optimized business intelligence, and detailed consumer spending habits directly from each industry.
